This was a ding-dong affair with the scores changing throughout in damp Templeboy on Wednesday evening. 

Both teams had scored two points a piece in the first 10 minutes of the half when Farnans started to dominate around the middle and they forged out a two point lead. With 10 minutes to go in the half we managed to break up field and a long ball into Vinny Howley which he won and turned and released Niall Judge who went around the home keeper to put us two up, a lead we held to the break 1-4 v 0-5.

We missed three good chances after the break but the first score of the half went to Farnans who then quickly followed it up with a goal after a long free was palmed down in the square. The lead was increased and looked insurmountable when again a ball broke to Niall Judge who travelled 40metres before putting Darragh Gilmartin through to score low to the net. This was quickly followed by a point from play. 

In the last 4 minutes of the game and injury time we took the lead only for Farnans to storm back and equalise and then take the lead heading into injury time. In the last attack of the game Keith Earlis and Frank Barrett combined before Niall Judge put over with the last kick of the game.

Team: Anthony Kilcullen, Conor Judge, David Fox, Daragh Gilmartin, Keith Earlis, Ronan Keane, John Cullen, Stephen Kilgallon, Barnes Kelly, Brian Lynn, Frank Barrett, Niall Judge, Vinny Howley, Eoin Flynn. Subs: Ultan McGranahan, Brendan Howley, Mark Carr, Shane Feeney Vinny Igoe
